Their newborn daughter has been diagnosed with VATER Syndrome. They are hours away from their family and friends, and are basically watching their daughter fight for her life.
This beautiful angel is a true fighter! She has been through multiple surgeries, and still has a long way to go. She defied the odds, and was able to breathe on her own over the weekend. They are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Speech Pathologist who will begin working with Addison on eating from a bottle. That will take her one step closer to being able to go home.
The MOST wonderful news update was that her parents were able to hold her for the first time on Saturday! Can you imagine NOT being able to hold your baby in your arms for the first three weeks of her life?
Addison is still not out of the woods, but she is making tremendous strides. When she IS able to come home, she will be surrounded by an amazing extended family. Not to mention the BEST mom and dad a girl could ask for:)
Thanks for keeping her in your thoughts and prayers. Things are always better when we stick together!
